Facilities for Research and Education

Facility coordination within Research and Education (FoU) is managed in col­laboration with the Facility & Building department (LoB) at Karolinska University Hospital. You should contact the facility coordinator at FoU with notices of termination, enquiries about your facilities or new letting.

Rental inquiries

All research groups in the building dispose of their facilities in accordance with separate agreements. The agreement will be updated in conjunction with notices of termination or expansion of the facilities, and the research group leader, or equivalent, will approve the change. Rent will be deducted every month from designated cost center.

New groups

The following procedure shall be followed regarding a new enquiry for allocation in BioClinicum:

  1. When a research group shows an interest for moving to BioClinicum they are referred to the appropriate research theme leader, which together with affected research groups, try to find an appropriate allocation. It is important that the group leader already at this point are in contact with appropriate prefect and hospital predecessor.
  2. The research theme leader will thereafter contact the facility manager at FoU foulokaler.karolinska@sll.se, that in consultation with the house manager review the proposal. If no hindrance, the group leader will be contacted for practical issues, rent etc.
  3. Thereafter the research group leader will establish the suggested allocation with appropriate prefect and hospital predecessor and approval from both are needed.
  4. The formal decision of allocating the new research group to BioClinicum is made by the FoU-director.
